I work for STARS in calgary and we had a team go to Haiti a couple of times and we saw how people can come together in times of crises. My thought was how do we coordinate with people and a coordinating body in slave lake to help - whether its cleaning up or simply bringing up supplies to distribute. In any case, STARS employees want to help and I thought if you came to stars in calgary you can share your thoughts and rally people to help somehow.

I would like to come to Slave lake for a couple of months to help with restore any finishing work for the homes being rebuilt and other home that were damaged.  I have a 16 foot grumman cube truck to offer for deliveries and for any other jobs that need be done.  I am a tile installer and I would like to offer my skills for flooring counters and backsplash.  I can also lay bricks for any bric surfaces.  I can also cook or do any other job within my capacity.  I plan to travel from Prince George next week.  I am prepared to start immediately, but have to make a two day trip back to PG on the tw on the 20 of June and return to slave Lake on the 24th and resume my duties.  I feel so badly for all the citizens that lost their homes and businesses.  Please call me to confirm. 250-964-6619
Many Blessings

I know the immediate term will be taken care of, but I'd like to offer to adopt
a project after the media cycle dies down - so please keep me posted in
the coming weeks as the damage is assessed and I will get the "Team
Ontario" group headed up, okay?
I will probably be in touch with Joey Mouallem and Gerry Allarie on the
same topic, so will try to keep everyone looped in so we can make the
biggest impact with our efforts.
With thanks, Natalie

Hi there, I was looking on your blog page for information on how to volunteer my time, be it in the shelters or at a later point in clean up or rebuilding. I don't have anything other then my time and hands to offer, however I do have specific crisis training, basic first aid and have worked with people in crisis situations for 5 years. If you have any information on who I may contact that would be awesome! I would love to help in any way I can.  liza25@live.ca

I would love to volunteer my time to help the town of Slave Lake with cleanup of the aftermath of the fire. But am not sure who to contact or what to do, I realize the authorities probably have a plan for this and organization is key, if you know who I contact, please let me know. I have family who lost everything they own in the fire, and I could never even imagine going through that. I will also be putting together care packages for the evacuees and taking them to our local radio station as they are doing a drive for donations. Thank you so much for your time and efforts, it really is appreciated- not only by the victims but the onlookers too.

I am a truck driver that owns his own semi.  I loaded a load of lumber in slave lake just a few weeks ago.  I am saddened to hear of the fire with so many losses of homes and property.  I am willing to lend a hand next week through donation of time and movement of donation items with my truck.   It is a flatbed that is 48 foot long so I could haul equipment or possibly a shipping container for some organization.   If some one wanted to donate a box-van trailer to the cause I could use that with my truck instead.
Michael Strom

I own a cube truck, and believe could be of use to the community. It is worked during the week, but I could bring supplies down on a Friday and/or Saturday.  I am also very capable of volunteering myself in cleanup, cooking, or anything that may be needed...
My phone number is 780 625-1036.  Please do not hesitate to call or pass my information onto somebody that is in charge of the services I can provide or if u can steer me in the right direction. Thank you very much!!  Have a very pleasant day.

I have a ¾ ton HD diesel truck with a 20ft gooseneck flat deck trailer and a skidsteer. I am not licensed or insured, just a privately owned machine we use at the farm. I’m pretty handy with it, but not a professional by any means. I have a week of spare vacation that I can book off to help clean debris, do basic landscaping, manual labour etc. I just need two week’s notice so I can book the time off. I am not asking for any money for accommodations, use of my truck, trailer, skid steer or manual labour. I can be reached at 780-297-0869 or Russell@ZieglerDigital.ca

I am from Slave Lake, our home was one that was unaffected. I really want to help with anything. The clean up and rebuilding. My phone number is 780 849 0494!!
Thank you so much, let me know what I can do as soon as they let us back in Slave Lake!!

I would like to share some news from Darren Boyer, owner of pcit.com in Grande Prairie.  Darren and members of his team will be coming to Slave Lake to volunteer their time to help with businesses hit by the fires over the past week.  The pcit team are providing IT services at no cost to help those in need.
If you can help share this amongst the community, that would be wonderful.  Darren can be reached at 866.933.PCIT.
We hope all is well with you and your family
